Make a submission
Have your say about publicly notified resource consent applications by making a submission.
To make a submission, you will need to identify what effect the proposed activity will have on you, and why you support or oppose it. Make sure you study the application, talk to Council staff, and talk to other people who might be affected.
This will help you to identify the matters you want to raise in your submission.

Tips for writing a good submission
A well written submission has two key elements – the relevant content and a readable style.
Tips to get started:
- Think carefully about what needs to go into your submission
- Give the content a logical order
- Stick to the facts.
A clear and well-written submission is far more effective than a rambling and emotional one. Facts supported by evidence, not emotion, is what Council will use when making decisions.
